I am not sure about starting pay as I have been with the company for a long time.

Pay stinks for starters - me

It's VBC pay and turns out to be around 6-7 cpl. NO thanx. That doesn't pay the bills.

Well if you can do 400 lph that isn't so bad is it? - and I started out at that 6 mos ago.

I believe it really is TOTALLY about the cpl you offered but how good your skills are.
oopsie - I meant to say "it really is NOT about CPL you are offered" - I think I just lost credibility huh? HA HA

Only human right?
But think how much more you'd make at 9 cpl even. nm - Still is not a decent wage IMO

Exactly - me

I average over 350 lph but it's very difficult to get that with VBC - I have a hard time believing someone can do 400 lph on a VBC account.

I was offered a job with SmartDoc - MTmomof2

and turned it down when I was told with all of my experience (11 years) I would be paid a whopping $.07/line. So what would the pay be without my 'experience' is what I wondered. Are you kidding me?!? That is absolutely ridiculous.

I seriously wonder if it is going to come down to being told someone with that much experience (or more) is overqualified for these paying peanut positions.
